Our Feminist Foremothers on Abortion

“Sweeter even than to have had the joy of caring for children of my own has it been to me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them.” – Susan B. Anthony

“When we consider that women are treated as property, it is degrading to women that we should treat our children as property to be disposed of as we see fit.” – Elizabeth Cady Stanton

“Abortion is the ultimate exploitation of women.” – Alice Paul

“When a man steals to satisfy his hunger, we may safely conclude that there is something wrong in society – so when a woman destroys the life of her unborn child, it is an evidence that either by education or circumstances she has been greatly wronged.” – Mattie Brinkerhoff

    Thanks for sharing these quotes Rachel. No matter what one’s views are on the legalities of abortion, the reality of abortion is tragic.

  2. Alise Says:

    Great quotes — thanks for sharing! I especially liked the second one. Brilliant.

    I don’t know if you remember me from the Jezzie loop way back in the day, but I noticed you on Karlene’s blog and wanted to stop by to say hello. Hope all is well with you! ~A

    Yes, of course I remember you, Alise! It’s so good to hear from you! All is well with our family and I hope it is with your lovely family as well.
